Pablo Sainz Villegas

Praised as “the soul of the Spanish guitar,” PABLO SÁINZ VILLEGAS is a worldwide sensation! With his “virtuosic playing characterized by irresistible exuberance” (as described by The New York Times), his interpretations conjure the passion, playfulness, and drama of Rioja, his homeland’s rich musical heritage. He is known for his passionate, emotive and open-hearted playing, whether he is performing at intimate recital halls, or playing with beloved tenor, Plácido Domingo, to an audience of over 85,000. Maestro Domingo even hailed him as “the master of the guitar.” A born communicator, the guitarist explains, “Music is among things we cannot touch and that is what makes it most powerful.”
